  • UHHHHH you need to go to a doctor immediatly! Seriously. Those tests are usually only wrong when they say you aren't pregnant. Go to a doctor now! Those hormones could be really dangerous mixed with a pregnancy.

  • My positives were always faded, it means there was a trace of the pregnancy hormone in your system. That is the only thing that will make that show. You seriously need to see a doc asap!

  • It could be pregnancy. I had taken tests when I had mine and they all came out negative until I really was pregnant. I do agree to call the dr. When I finally got a positve it was SUPER LIGHT. And I had a baby.....

  • Yeah, Depo and Mirena are pretty much the same hormones. See they both make you eat a lot, gain weight, and get really tired too. I got prego on Depo. Mirena is a hormone release IUD not copper so it is possible to be pregnant. I don't care what anyone says, if you get a positive pregnancy test and are on any type of bc you need to see a doctor. Good luck!

  • If there is a line, there is very little chance you are not pregnant. Call the doctor first thing in the morning. Goodluck to you :)
